E-mail me! This is the best way to get in touch, and I usually respond within two business days. 


Hello! I'm Halsey (she/her), a freelance illustrator and lettering artist based in Washington, DC. I received my BFA from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2014, where I studied Fine Arts with a concentration in painting. From there, I developed a love for letters and telling stories with my work. I've been freelancing since 2016, and have worked with corporate, small business, and individual clients on an array of digital and hand-painted projects.


As a multidisciplinary artist, my studio practice varies between digital and traditional forms of making. I've sharpened my skills to work in editorial illustration. merchandise and package design, custom lettering, web illustration, hand-painted signage, murals, logo design, and branding. I practice all of these disciplines because I love the problem-solving nature of design.

My personal work is as equally varied as my client work. My goal is always to make people think, laugh, or both. I admire traditional sign painters, tattooers, and pin-stripers, and look up to artists like Stephen Powers and Margaret Kilgallen. 

On the weekends, you can find me crocheting, learning new crafts, playing Dungeons & Dragons, and working in my sketchbook. I have two dogs and two cats, and I love animals.


I'm always looking for new projects and clients to work with! Whether you're a major brand, small business, or just a person looking to start something new, let's work together!
